How will your windfall serve your desired Lifestyle?
Once you have selected your ideal property, you need to make another major life changing decision and your final decision will be based on which opportunity offers you the very best financial windfall moving forward.
We have already identified that all outgoing payments have been covered by yourtown for the first 12 months.
So you have some time up your sleeve to make enquiries, carry out due diligence, weigh up your options and put your plans into practice.
Here is an idea of the sorts of things you should take into account and options you have at your discretion. Some of the choices you will need to consider are as follows;
Move in, live and make the most of your ideal residential lifestyle.
This might be just what the doctor ordered for you. The residence suits you to a tee, you have fallen in love with it already (and who wouldn’t).
Depending on whether you are paying off your existing own home or renting, you may decide whether to sell your existing home or rent it out for the reliable ongoing income and long-term capital gains.
If you are renting, you really only need to decide what furniture has sentimental value and which pieces will be moving into the new residence with you and what furniture can be sold.
Become a Landlord and rent the residence out to;
Holiday letting (short stay)
You may decide to leave all of the furniture in the residence (after dibs on the particular pieces that you would love to keep for yourself).
Short stay- otherwise known as holiday letting, offers substantial returns on your investment.
As long as you are prepared for the slow months, where the property is sitting vacant. You need to consider the variables to determine, whether you are happy with this as an aggressive approach to potentially reap handsome rewards.
Permanent rental (long term tenant)
This would be the safer option if you prefer more reliable income. In this instance, you would more than likely remove all of the furnishings.
With the apartment, as the landlord, you would normally leave the washing machine and dryer in the laundry, whereas with a terrace house, you would not normally provide these for a tenant.
This option offers you a reliable income landing in your account on a fortnightly on a monthly basis.
Most Landlords hire a Property manager to manage their property for them, which would include, locating an appropriate tenant, arranging the entry condition report and long term lease, meeting legislation (e.g.making sure fire alarm testing is being carried out prior to each new tenant and each new lease) the banking and the day to day arranging if something needs to be addressed.
It is not often your property manager would need to seek your permission or opinion.
You may prefer to carry out the ongoing property management yourself to save the property manager’s fee.
Sell the residence and re-invest the funds
You may prefer to sell the property, for any number of reasons, perhaps you would like to invest in taking your business to the next level.
Perhaps you would prefer to purchase a business on the premise that it will provide superior return on investment.
Perhaps you would prefer to invest the funds into the stock market, this may be your preferred revenue vehicle.
Or you may wish to invest in two or three properties, which may offer better returns than the one exclusive property.
You may simply prefer to purchase an exclusive home close to where you currently live.
Borrow against the equity
There is no doubt, both of these properties that yourtown have presented, are in ideal locations and they both offer exceptional capital gains probability over the long term.
You may feel that if you could extract some of the equity in your new home, it will enable you to produce an increased return on the investment.
You could live in either exclusive residence with very limited outgoings, of you could have a mortgage on your property as well as other investments that produce income, which in your experience, you believe would be a better return.
You can choose to access your equity regardless of whether you are living in the residence, or are renting it out, either long term or short term.
By accessing some of the funds in the property, you can still reap the rewards of capital gains, by owning the property over the longer term as well as producing further income from other ventures, the equity enables you to invest in.
There certainly a lot to take into consideration isn’t there? Regardless of which direction you decide to move forward, we highly recommend you meet with a trusted accountant or financial adviser prior to making any significant decisions.
yourtown to support our youth to improve outcomes
Every child has the right to a brighter future, yourtown provide resources and tools youths need to achieve that, through early intervention programs, access to all-hours support and specialised creative therapies.
Unfortunately, many youths, for one reason or another, find themselves in situations that are less than ideal, but they don’t know how to improve their circumstances or what assistance is available to them such as job training, job seeking, putting together and printing of a resume. They may have no idea who to turn to for support.
Yourtown is there to offer guidance, reassurance, and support, so individuals can start to learn management skills and build resilience as well as build on their confidence, so they can apply for jobs and perform confidently during job interviews.
‘There is just so much that is on offer to our youth. But none of that would be possible without the funds that their Prize homes produce.
We commend you for your support. May your month be filled with prosperity and generosity! PHT
